Best Budget-Friendly Gloss

Super Colour Conditioning Gloss, £16 | Glaze

This gloss instantly enhances natural or dyed hair by flooding strands with a tonne of nourishing ingredients. Semi-permanent, it boosts colour, shine and softness, with results expected to last for at least ten washes. It’s similar to a deep conditioning treatment, and there are ten colour-matching shades to choose from, ranging from light blonde through to dark black. There’s also a clear gloss in the range if you just want a bit more shine.

Best For Dry Or Damaged Hair

Hair Gloss, £30 | Ouai

We’ve already waxed lyrical about our favourite skincare-infused hair care heroes, and SL-trusted Ouai is also jumping on the trend. Infused with hyaluronic acid and rice water, its gloss works hard to boost shine and reduce frizz – making it ideal for those with hair that is on the drier side. It also has built-in heat protection to maintain long-term hair health. The results last for up to three washes, but for finer hair types, we’d recommend using it in place of your conditioner to avoid too much product build-up.

Best For Coloured Hair

Chocolate Gloss, £19 | Josh Wood Colour

This award-winning, semi-permanent dye is a favourite among those in the know. Whether you have natural or colour-treated hair, this promises to enhance tone, condition and shine. Easy to use, simply put on the included gloves before applying the product to wet hair. Distribute it evenly and let it sit for 20 minutes before washing out and styling as normal.

Best For Frizzy Hair

Chroma Absolu Soin Acide Chroma Gloss, £42.30 (was £47) | Kérastase

Lightweight yet high-powered, this gloss gets to work smoothing individual hair cuticles and reducing friction to keep things looking glossy all over. Similar to the Ouai gloss, the formula includes a common skincare favourite, lactic acid. This ingredient works to remove mineral build-up which can be deposited in hard water areas, causing lack-lustre, dull and dry hair. Great at fighting frizz and humidity, this one is a must-pack for holidays.

Best All-Rounder

G4 Hydra-Gloss Treatment, £26 | Typebea

TypeBea’s G4 Hydra-Gloss Treatment really does do it all. It can be applied root to tip, and a small amount onto any area of concern on the scalp. Using ceramides to protect and hyaluronic acid to hydrate, it strengthens and moisturises everything in one go. It’s also loaded with familiar haircare ingredients like argan oil, avocado oil and shea butter – to coat and nourish strands. It can be used as part of your hair wash routine, or applied dry on those in-between days when your hair needs a bit of extra definition.
